SKECHERS LAUNCHES THE HEALTH CARE PRO SR SERIES

 

For years, Skechers footwear has been worn throughout the healthcare industry: everyone from doctors and nurses to lab professionals, technicians and more have raved about how cushioned, comfortable and supportive our shoes are, especially for those long days on their feet. So for the pros who spend their days caring for all of us, we’ve made a shoe that cares for them: the Skechers Work Health Care Pro SR series.

As part of our Skechers Work series, this collection is truly the kind of style that medical pros will love. It’s colorfully on-trend, thanks to a wide range of shades to choose from (perfect for all kinds of scrubs… you can even pair them with Skechers’ new scrubs collection that just landed at top scrub retailers; see the offering here)! Skechers Work Health Care Pro SR shoes are also designed to meet the day-to-day demands of the medical industry, from its ASTM-approved slip-resistant soles to 3M™ Scotchguard uppers designed to repel water, liquid and stains. Plus with Skechers’ famed comfort technology at your feet – air-cooled memory foam insoles, flexible construction and supportive heel designs – these shoes are ready to take any shift head-on.

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE

As a very famous singer once said, “Give peace a chance.” Established in 1981 after unanimous resolution by the United Nations, the International Day of Peace provides for a date (September 21) shared around the globe “for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.”

We share in that commitment and asked our Skechers friends around the world seen in the images below to flash their peace signs to commemorate this important day.  To learn more about special events happening tied to this year’s UN theme of “Together for Peace:  Respect, Safety and Dignity for All,” check out the map at internationaldayofpeace.org.  We want to hear from you!  Let us know how you plan to reflect and act in the name of global peace in the comments.

NEW SCHOOL YEAR, NEW KICKS & A NEW WAY TO SHOP FOR SKECHERS WITH LISTEN2LENA!

Lena Almeida from Listen2Lena shows us how she gets her boys Back to School ready with #SKECHERS. She’s loving how easy it is to shop for their favourite styles. Read on to find out more!

If you’re a long-time follower of my blog, and you happen to pay more attention to detail than most, you’ll have picked up on one, indisputable, impossible-to-ignore truth –
My boys ALWAYS wear SKECHERS shoes.

They love the fresh designs and wide array of colours and styles; I love the durability and affordable prices. From S Lights to Skech-TrainSKECHERS GOrun to Nitrate, my boys have worn them all.

 

However, until very recently, I had what we Canadians call “.com” envy. It happens when we discover a brand’s US website offers an enviable selection of products, whereas the Canadian counterpart… doesn’t.

That was once true for SKECHERS. Hey, no shame in their e-commerce game! (Maybe a little.) But they knew they had to change things up, and trust me when I say they delivered. Introducing the ALL NEW Canadian skechers.com/en-ca – with the option to pay in Canadian funds, and ship to Canadian addresses!

Suddenly, Canadians have access to an incredible selection of SKECHERS’ hottest shoes at amazing prices. Shipping is a flat $8.95 + tax no matter where you ship to in Canada, but *of course* I always find a way to hack shipping fees –

If you sign up for a FREE SKECHERS Elite Membership, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

– Discounted standard shipping (just $4.95 + tax per order)
– Earn points and get rewards with every purchase
– Exclusive member-only savings and contests

I mean, this is all great, but can we circle back to my original point – you now have access to hundreds, if not thousands, of SKECHERS styles for the whole family!

Speaking of, you just know my boys had to start the year in style! They adore these SKECHERS Emoji Jagged High Tops, aptly named Food Brawl and Number 2!

These shoes are so stinkin’ cute! (Pun NOT intended, I swear!) They have a smooth woven canvas fabric upper and casual high-top sneaker design. The stitching accents and contrast rubber toe cap front set off the sides, which feature a cool emoji print. Don’t miss the removable lace charm accent!

Of course, since most school children require two pairs of shoes (indoor and outdoor sneakers), I selected another pair of staples: SKECHERS’ revered Skech-Train shoes.

Think multi-purpose comfort! They offer a slip-on athletic sporty training sneaker design with 3D printed lightweight sculpted side panel overlays for lightweight stability. Plus, a gel-infused memory foam cushioned comfort insole and shock-absorbing midsole means they’ll be cool and comfortable as they hit the playground.

Love what you see? All of the shoes featured above are just $60.00 at skechers.com/en-ca. But don’t think I let my boys have all the fun – I’ll be back to feature some AH-MAZING shoes for men and women. Trust me, when you see mine, you’ll say “they were made for you, Lena!”

In the meantime, visit my Facebook fan page between September 18 and September 20 for a VERY special promotion – 20 lucky followers will receive a 20% off discount code and FREE shipping for the all-new Canadian skechers.com/en-ca!

GETTING BACK TO ROUTINE IN STYLE THIS FALL WITH KISH

Summer is about to come to an end and that means that some of us will be entering a new stage of life. Once college or university has ended, it is time to pound the pavement and start interviewing and working. Having affordable yet stylish shoes is important for this next stage of life.

STEP INTO YOUR CAREER, IN STYLE.

I’ve partnered with Skechers this fall to bring you some styling tips and outfit ideas for this upcoming season. Consider more timeless pieces and comfortable options as well. Some of you have just finished school and are entering a new phase in life. Instead of going back to school, there are those that are beginning a new job.

Entering the workforce can be intimidating and stressful and on top of all that you will probably have to revamp your closet as well. Wearing the same sweatpants everyday will not do, so you have to step things up for your new adult job. Dark denim and a long jacket should be a staple for any stylish, grown man. Most importantly, keep the look fresh with a pair of crisp sneakers. Who said you had to wear stiff leather dress shoes to the office? The key to wearing sneakers to the office is keeping them clean. Don’t wear the same shoes you bring to the gym. I chose the Modern Jogger in Grey for my work outfit. I like how these fit comfortably and have minimalist styling. Believe it or not, these ones are slip on which makes it easy to put on and jet out the door for work.

 

 

For my second look, I decided to go for a relaxed, weekend vibe. Weekends are for walking around and exploring the city. Living downtown is the best in the fall, and I love to walk around shopping and seeing the sites. It’s the perfect time to run little errands while simultaneously trying to unwind from the long work week.

 

WALKABOUT WEEKEND

Mark Nason for Skechers is one of my favorites, and has been a go to in the past. Check out the last time I wore them, here. Fall will always be a denim daze, as it is the perfect fabric for the season. It’s heavy enough for a chilly night but still breathable. Weekends are the best time to rock a Canadian Tux, and denim-on-denim will never die. Pair this look will these sleek boots and you have a comfortable and stylish look.

LET’S RELAX AS SUMMER SLOWS DOWN

It seems incredibly appropriate that this month included National Relaxation Day (August 15). We suggest marking the occasion as a reminder to take a deep breath and enjoy the last couple weeks of August before the end of the unofficial summer season. With all the travel and getaways and barbecues and beach days, sometimes summer seems to pass by in the blink of an eye as the cooler days of autumn sneak up on us.

When it comes to footwear, relaxation and comfort go hand in hand and Skechers Relaxed Fit styles offer a roomier toe box and a soft air-cooled memory foam insole to ensure you’re feeling great at every step so you can maintain that late-season zen. The men’s Madolly lace-up sneaker is perfect for a trek out the beach cruiser away from the crowds.  When it’s just you and the path ahead, it’s easy to find your zone and let your mind let go.

Sometimes chillaxing with a friend with no plans in the future is exactly what the doctor ordered. Coordinating colors of your comfortable knitted slip-ons is optional, but as you can see the men’s Expected – Gomel in navy and the women’s Breathe Easy – Lassie in blue could be a perfect ice breaker as you and a date drift off into a long laugh-filled conversation about your favorite episodes of Always Sunny.  It’ll be a silly conversation but what makes it amazing is that you have nowhere else to be.

In the end, all that matters is locking in the time to do whatever sets your mind at ease. It almost seems counterproductive to make an appointment for relaxation, but if we don’t carve out the time in our busy lives—it just passes us by!  So don’t miss out and treat yourself while the sun is still bright and the weather is still warm.  A few more perfectly comfy slip on Relaxed Fit styles—the Men’s Harper – Moven and women’s Breathe Easy – Like Crazy seen above.  And the women’s Empire – Inside Look seen below.  Let us know what you’re doing to find relaxation this summer in the comments!
